is where why are they only targeting s&p? why not moody and fitch who is also rating these collateralized cdos. >> i don't know why they would target only s&p. moody's is every bit involved. fitch, too. the whole rating system is broken because as you pointed out in your excellent piece leading up to this, that the rating agencies are paid by the investment banks. any time they are paid by the investment banks as their employees--their own employees pointed out, they're going to do what the investment bangs have banks have asked them to do, which is to rate these cdos. there were thousands of these cdos and cdos squared and all sorts of squirrly securities that were rated triple-a. and the reason why they were rated triple-a, that's what the banks wanted them to do. they did exactly what they were paid to do. the model is broken, all these ratings agencies that have this model should pay. the litigation should be brought against them. i don't i don't why it's just s&p. moody's was just as bad. fitch was justed a bad. >> jennifer: maybe they only had evidence to go after them first. i don'

him take a sip and we have chris moody senior writer, thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> michael: i want to get your take on the speech. you've seen a lot of them. you've traveled with other candidates now a lot. what did you think of the tactic that the president used hast night? >> well, it was an old fashioned state of the union speech where they put out a long liberal wish list. he proposed a lot of big ideas as you said, quite a few of them are not going to pass congress, particularly he talked about raising the minimum wage, the federal minimum wage to $9. just this morning john boehner said no way. so he's got a couple of avenues he can go down, but not nearly as he mentioned hast night. >> michael: you know one of the things that he said hast night talked about the deficit, and how all of these programs that he was introducing to congress--i'll get to talking about what you just said as well. weren't going to add to the deficit. let's listen to the president. >> obama: let me repeat, nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime

. still, it does beg the larger question, if you're going after s&p, why wouldn't you gone after moody's as well, the other large ratings agency that engaged in so many of these practices that we're well aware of given all the e-mails unearthed and that which scott referred to. here's what holder had to say on the overall question of whether this was political payback. >> they did what they did assessing what the credit worthiness was of this nation. we looked at the facts, the law and the investigation that these great prosecutors and civil lawyers put together and made a determination that the filing of these lawsuits is appropriated, but they are not in any way connected. >> the settlement talks as we've previously reported, the government saying we want at least ten plus, at least $1 billion. mcgraw hill, the parent of s&p, had come back perhaps with $100 million offer. they also want an admission of guilt. hence, they have brought those charges, but it's going to be quite some time until we see them, if we ever do in a court of law. >> david, what's the answer as to why moody's is

things to make sure we don't have a second grade depression. >> an economist with moody's but this is moody's analytics who wrote a paper on this very estimated that without the policy response we could be 17 percent unemployment, a rate we have not seen since the 1930's. it would have been worse. people need to have a vague understanding of why the federal reserve did what it did and the obama administration did raise the deficit, bigger deficits are bad but there was a rationale for a stimulus package. but the biggest message of the book to me as the author is a paradox of the private markets ran amok but pretty effectively to put things back on track but at the end of the day you witnessed a sharp backlash you call it a big government americans are against it. but there was a reason for the government intervention the likes we have not seen since the 1930's and it would have been a preview. nonetheless you did have a backlash against the government in general, president obama, it would have been against him him, against a democratic party more generally, the federal r

of the reasons why moody's perhaps made their move to upgrade our ratings was because they heard the rumor mill already about who we're about to appoint. [laughter] >> they wanted to reinforce that. but it's an incredible thing. i amoeba, -- mean, i think other cities are challenged by their ratings and we in the city working together, all of us sacrificing what we've done and having good discussions, are turning it around not only for us, but for future generations. and, so, i am pleased to announce carmen as the new assessor and that she will lead the effort there to do what phil ting did and so many others before them, is help us generate and get the revenues that we need, do it in an efficient, an expert professional way, and enhance the staff's hope and belief that not only do we have a good manager at the helm, but a good partner with the rest of the fiscal leads in the city that are doing all the right thing and conversing in the right tone. this is so important these days to register a whole city family of professionals to talk with, not only rating agencies, but with our counterparts
. if you want to listen to the credit rating agency, moody's say this. moody's can also downgraded the uk's government debt rating further in the event of reduced political commitment to fiscal consolidation. now on this side of the house we know that is a vital work we have to do. will he finally now admit that he is in favor of more borrowing? admit it. >> at militant. >> you always know when he starts asking me questions that he can't answer questions about his own record. the part-time chancellor said he would be a humiliation for britain to lose its aaa credit rating. now, mr. speaker. i know the prime minister is not big on humility. by his manifesto, but his manifesto did promise he would be accountable and open. so let's give him another ago. simple question. yes or no lex hasn't he failed the first economic test that he set out in this manifesto? >> look, i'm not arguing for one moment that the rating agency doesn't matter. that is his argument, his argument is the rating agency doesn't matter. the answer to do is borrow more not to take any responsibility for the mess they left.

as the hatchet guy but there are red flags. moody's and fitch gave the same ratings at the same time, they have not been sued, and the only ones to downgrade the government trading. why wasn't moody's and fitch included? gerri: a very good question and the one people are making today. the financial inquiry commission here is what they said, agencies were cogs in the real of financial destruction and enablers of a financial meltdown. >> that is a great sound by. those are great for lawyers like me but they don't win lawsuits. you have to have evidence and facts but i could point* to 100 different things, that resulted in the financial perfect storm. so to say they are the cog in the real, should they not give aaa ratings, probably not. gerri: there were the last stop, the last break in the system, people getting mortgages in over their head the banks gave them the mortgages. by the end of the day the investors are looking for advice if it was a good investment they all said sure, we like it. >> altogether i agree. they were supposed to be the safety net if they had all done their jobs this could
